Performance Improvement CME: Managing Schizophrenia

J Clin Psychiatry 2011;72(10):e31

Schizophrenia is a highly disabling disorder characterized by positive and negative symptoms and poor functioning in almost every area of life. Multiple antipsychotics have demonstrated varying levels of efficacy in reducing symptoms in schizophrenia, but adverse effects are common, adherence to medication is low, and relapse rates are high.
